Celebrating Labor Day by standing in line to eat roast beef sandwiches, cupcakes

There was some kind of line today for Butter Lane Cupcakes on Seventh Street....

Weekend in review: Laboring edition

In case you've been away... Friday started with good news.

First, we learned that Theatre 80 will remain a community theater.

Then the renovations began at St. Brigid's. And Friday night, we could see the lights on inside the church.


People stood in line for Trader Joe's and we wondered why.

And we took a lot of photos of Art Around the Park.

And we had the last dance.

Going away this weekend...

...or are you having, in the words of the Times, a "staycation?" As the paper notes:

It is a ridiculous word, but that hasn’t stopped the sprouting of so many Web sites with perky “I ♥ N.Y.” staycation ideas — Circle Line, a museum visit, a tenement tour and bialy on the Lower East Side.

And, admittedly, it’s a very fun word to say. Staycation. How was your staycation? My parents went on staycation, and all I got was this lousy T-shirt. Our son-in-law threw his back out on staycation.

As is so often the case, this new thing is nothing new in many parts of New York City. It’s just that it was never named by those level-headed working men and women who do not need a tarted-up pseudoword to enjoy a nice week without work.
